Spurs showing interest in Jazz's Collins

By Tim Buckley
Deseret Morning News
The San Antonio Spurs have emerged as a potential suitor for Jazz free-agent center Jarron Collins.
The Jazz have said they want to re-sign Collins, who has spent his entire five-year NBA career in Utah.
The team, however, also has indicated it will not overpay for Collins, who made $1.7 million while averaging 5.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game last season.
Collins, meanwhile, is testing the league's recently opened free-agency market — and apparently drawing some interest from San Antonio, where the local paper calls the Stanford product "the top NBA free-agent center left on the market."
According to a report posted Thursday on the San Antonio Express-News' Web site, Collins' agent, Bob Myers, called the Spurs "an attractive option."
Myers also said his client is assessing all options — one of which evidently includes re-signing with the Jazz.
The Spurs probably will not overpay for Collins, either.
But they are searching for a center to play alongside star Tim Duncan after Nazr Mohammed recently agreed to sign as a free agent with Detroit and Rasho Nesterovic was traded to Toronto.
Besides Mohammed, centers Ben Wallace (who agreed to leave Detroit for Chicago) and Joel Przybilla (who orally committed to re-sign with Portland) also are off the market.

I'm puzzled as well. Mihm would be a better choice because of his starting experience.

Collins is a career backup center. Apparently the Spurs are desperate enough to get anybody at this point without helping rivals in their conference.

It's not like Mihm was a starting center. We didn't get the center we needed, so Mihm started for us. When we brought Mihm, he was a backup, much like Smush.

Mihm is a better choice, but you have to give up someone for him. Collins can be picked up without giving up anything and comes cheaper. Unless Spurs are looking to dump contract, Mihm is not the solution.
